Also known as “bootlace” or “shoestring” ties outside of the US, the bolo tie is a mainstay of country & western American dressing, favoured by Indians & wannabe cowboys alike. It consists of a piece of cord with metal tips & an ornamental slide.
This is a great quality piece for the price – the black cord is finished with silver metal aglets with a solid metallic horse-head print slide to hold the tie in place at your chosen length.
Want to rock this look but don’t have a Western theme to match it? Bolo ties were also popular with Teddy Boys in the ’50s, made a resurgence in the 80s & are also a feature of modern day Rockabilly dressing.
